UCT establishes commission into student admissions

27 February 2012

UCT Council recently established a Commission into UCT Students Admissions, its goal to broaden engagement with the policy review by Council members and the public.

The commission will be chaired by UCT Council member Judge Craig Howie and will consider material garnered by the university's admissions policy review task team, as well as the views of the public and sectors inside and outside the university.

The vice-chancellor, Dr Max Price, has invited staff and students to make written submissions to the commission, to address matters of policy and principle and to offer any ideas for improving UCT's admissions policy. The deadline for submissions is 9 March.

Submissions must be emailed to commission@uct.ac.za or posted to The Commission into UCT Students Admissions, Room 106, Bremner Building, Lovers' Walk, Rondebosch, 7700.

After consideration of the written submissions, the commission will decide whom to invite to make oral representations at hearings to be held from 15 to 17 May.

The commission aims to have its report to the UCT Council completed by October 2012.
